Senator Joe Manchin unveils bill that would expedite federal energy projects

The bill is expected to be attached to a measure to temporarily fund the government that Congress must pass before 1 October. It would require the federal government to issue permits for the long-delayed $6.6bn Mountain Valley Pipeline to take natural gas between West Virginia and Virginia. The bill also sets a two-year target for environmental reviews on energy projects that need to be completed by more than one federal agency. Environmental groups have been concerned that the bill would speed fossil fuel projects while undermining US environmental laws.
